New measurement option for the weight tracker.

Would it be feasible to add the option for recording thigh circumference measurements into the weight tracker. It seems to be a common problem for most. Also, this would not increase the graph area as the neck measurement would still be the lower value.
Thanks, Mel

Yes, I did find it.  For others wanting to know.  Click on the weight tracker on the dot where you entered your weight.  You can then put in your measurements.  It would be helpful to new users to put that in the tutorial.
Thanks

Where can you add your measurements?  I can't seem to find it on the weight tracker.  Is it there or elsewhere?

Thanks for the clarification. We'll add a body measurements tracker back to our list of to-do's and let you know when it's available.

Thanks,

Since my biceps, wrists, calves and thighs are different sizes, it is not accurate to average them to log a single number. It doesn't tell an accurate story of how one side changes, and whether more work needs to be done on one side or the other. I understand space is at a premium in the graphs - which is perhaps why the measurements might be better monitored in their own tracker...

We never did introduce the body measurement tracker since it seemed that most people were pretty satisfied with the body measurements available in the Weight Tracker. What else would you like to track and I'll see if we need to add another tracker or add another option to the existing Weight Tracker.

So is this Body measurement tracker available anywhere yet? If there is a facility for tracking body measurements, I cannot seem to locate it....

Thanks for the suggestion. We've added measurements for the chest, arm, calf, and thigh to the weight tracker.

Thank you for your response -  I will weight for the body measurements tracker -  as the neck is the least part of the body to be measured but should be included in a full body tracker.

Do we have any idea when the full body measurements tracker will be available? for many people trying to change their lifestyle measurements are more important and reflective than weight.

Sorry that the changes to the weight tracker made it less motivating. We've moved the neck measurement to its own chart so that you'll be able to see more granular movements in your trackers. Hopefully this will get you motivated again!

We'll let you know when the body measurements are available. Thanks!

A body measurements tracker is a great idea. We'll add this to the list of trackers requested and let you know when it's available. And when we launch it, we'll be sure to include thigh circumference.

Thanks for the suggestion!

I think a seprate tracker just for measurements would be good -  like an inch minder tracker -  because the recent changes to the weight tracker measurements has made it impossible to be motivated with any change.

It would be nice to have:
Neck
Chest
Waist
Abdomen
Hips
Thigh
Calf
Upper Arm
Forearm
